I made a complaint against a parent coordinator we were sent

I made a complaint against a parent coordinator we were sent to when applying for grandparents rights. The coordinator showed us a video of an interview he did of my grandson. He was trying to prove my son was abusing his triplet children. The video was not what you would have expected by a professional. Most of the questions were leading. I was appalled that this person infringed on my grandson's privacy. I filed a complaint against the board who licenses counselors in Louisiana. The investigation of my complaint took 5 months to begin. Once it began the coordinator learned I had filed a complaint and refused to go to a trial to handle the visitation of my grandchildren. The judge basically has indicated there will never be a trial and the matter resolved unless I drop the complaint. This person violated the HIPPA law. I get threatened that my son will never get a fair treatment by a judge if I don/t drop the complaint. This is blackmail
